A holiday movie parody play! Beth, a big city news reporter, inherits the Evergreen Inn, a bed and breakfast and tree farm in Christmasville, Canada. Can Santa, St. Agnes, an elf, and a hunky plaid-clad tree farmer help Beth pursue her true passion of baking and regain her Christmas spirit? Bet you can guess the answer!
